if that blows some fuses in germany. >> 2013 is a so-called super election-year in austria, meaning that voters will go to the polls several times. regional parliaments are due to be elected in four of the country's states ts sprg, followed by the national election of the federal parliament this autumn. it will not be an easy campaign for the traditional parties. they face competition from a political newcomer. some austrian politicians are reminded of a time in the early 1990's when a man came from the far right and meddled with the traditional austrian political landscape. he died four years ago, and his party has since lost some of its significance, but some former supporters have now found a new political home with a new party. >> he who has the gold makes the rules -- that was the model used when introducing the party in the timber. he was born into a poor family in austria but went to canada to make his millions. now he has returned to make a dramatic entrance on the political scene. >> i am certain that this is a very important day that will go down iaustan history. i also think it will
. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fighting and those sorts of things. it's dangerous ground for any politician because of that. >> we are seeing
as the historical event over 200 years ago is written about and talked about and people who are up for election? was this just an inevitable outgrowth of our part of the culture that talks about these issues this way? >> guest: i think to a large extent yes and if you look historically, it hasn't changed much over even the last 200 years. this kind of eerie propagandistic view of history. even while that history was being made, people were very propagandist. people were propagandist about washington and jefferson and what they meant. so yes, i do think that's part of the genre. and i think that part of the genre needs to be people like me, writing correctives and saying if this is where you are getting your history, it's wrong or it's not wrong, it's at least much more complicated than it's being made out to be. >> host: while we are talking about this point of being more complicated, let's say they have very good copy editors who went back and said instead of the founders, many of the founder said something or most of the founders or it was a common opinion at the time. with that simple change
about and talked about by people who are up for election and trying to sell books? is this an inevitable outgrowth of our culture? >> guest: to a large extent, yes, the discourse has not changed much over the last 200 years. this kind of very propagandaistic use of people and -- so, yes, i do think that is part of the genre. and i think that part of the genre needs to be people like me writing correctives and saying, this is -- if this is where groating your history, is a wrong, or if not wrong, it's at least much more complicated than it's being made out to be. >> let me talk about this point about it being more complicated. let's say they had very good copy editors who went back and said, instead of the founders said x, say said many hoff the founders said something, or most of the founderes, it was a common opinion at the time. would that simple kind of change of phrasing be enough to satisfy you or is there a deeper concern? no i think that would totally eliminate the utility of what i call the founder's dying monster. >> host: a wonderful metaphor. >> guest: when i first decided to
by the central african republic and rebels. new elections are lpted to be held been -- within 12 months and a member of the opposition will become prime minister. andre simmons has been following the developments in the capital. >> like all main decisions in this poverty stricken country, the announcement came on the radio. the president issued a dedegree -- decree dissolving his government. the prime minister has aren't -- resigned and he'll be replaced by someone from the opposition. talks are going on now. but all this is a good sign they're stirking to at agreement. >> hundreds of thousands of course shi'ia protectors are holding individualim a second night following the actions in quetta. many are refusing to bury victims of the attack and are demanding greater protection from the government. >> china's capital beijing is tchoking on some of the worst air pollution levels ever reported. the government has advised people to stay indoors, especially children, the elderly and people with ress pyreatory problems. -- respiratory problems. still to come, life on the turkish-syrian bemplt
in the next election, in fact, we lost the house for multiple reasons. but that was one of them. and -- but they came back in this period between election and now in the lame duck period and said they would do it again. it was so important to our country. >> we'll see. the fact of the matter is, where this goes, what is the political will as far as the white house is concerned, they can make a pragmatic argument that if they go with a smaller package it actually has a chance of passing if it has consensus but it could disappoint a lot of folks that want to see the white house go bigger and bolder on this issue. >>> afghan president hamid karzai is in town. he's going to be discussing the u.s. role in afghanistan post-2014. the u.s. or at least the white house is signaling it wants out of afghanistan and the white house disclosing a zero option. that is withdrawal or bust as a negotiating tactic. that's what this is. while troop levels aren't formally on the menu, the scope and size of the post-2014 force will be the focus of this trip by karzai and includes he's got meetings at
. in 1824 jackson beats john quincy adams in the election. he was the popular vote, but the electoral college flips and he loses the popular vote. i'm sleeping in palm the -- on speaking in palm beach county, so you all know a lot about these scenarios. he comes back in four years in 1828 and beats john quincy adams. in 1828, is merely the second nastiest election american history. of course, this current one being the nastiest. all the negative ads in such. there is no love lost between jackson and john quincy adams. jackson's supporters don't call john quincy adams are excellently -- your excellency. they call him their fraudulent seat. so it's this huge scandal. to the point where rachael becomes increasingly religious with every passing year. health diminishes to the point where now all these scandals about her are really affecting her mental-health and a physical off. she is hoping and praying that jackson doesn't win, the she does not to go to the white house so that her scandal becomes a national story and not just -- she's helping, writing letters. as a water has been to win,
envisioned a gay when a guy like richard nixon would be elected president. now for the top story tonight. more fallout from the al gore al jazeera situation as you may know. mr. gore has made tens of millions of dollars by selling his failing far left cable network to the anti-americans who run al jazeera out of the persian gulf. some of the people currently working at current tv are said to be angry because they will lose their jobs while mr. gore enriches himself. as far as al jazeera is concerned, all you need to know is this. in 2008, that network threw a televised birthday party for a lebanese terrorist. there he is in 1979 he was imprisoned for shooting israeli civilian dead in front of his 4-year-old daughter. then murdering the little girl by bashing her head in with a rifle. he got out of prison for some reason and al jazeera threw him a big party. tell vifsed it. i'm not sure whether al gore was invited. i'm with us now fox news anchor geraldo rivera who has his own al gore story. you know this terrorist as well. you talked to him. >> i do. i interviewed him in prison a year af
, the major issue and 1800 e. election and in the 1828 election that was under jackson versus john quincy adams. this question of our weak one nation or a bunch of states? this is what decided the federalist and antifederalist and supporting the constitution and the republicans in the founding and one united the whigs in to the democrats in the next generation. we have always had some people who see the united states primarily as a group of states in contact with each other and who see it as a union and the idea that the founders had a coherent position about state rights and all of them were killed the same thing i think requires you to pretend that they didn't have elections back then because that is what their actions were about. >> host: different parties wanted different things. i think that generally the southerners or more confederate. they saw this more of a compact states, the northerners i think or more as a nation. hamilton very much. hamilton was all still monarchist. hamilton solve this very much as a union. i think there was little of the conditions there was a strong belief
, italian finance minister said what italy needed to achieve after its critical elections. what are you doing? nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by using fedex ground and buy my own supplies. that's a great idea. i'm going to go... we got clients in today. [ male announcer ] save on ground shipping at fedex office. >>> welcome back to the program. under draft proposals seen by the financial times, struggling companies will either have to invest in failing banks alongside the european stability mechanism or guarantee the esm against any losses. eurozone officials declined to comment on the report. >>> as we mentioned ahead of the show, david cameron is beginning to feel the heat. over the weekend, just 26% members would like to maintain britain's current relationship with europe. while 29% want them to be less restrictive or for britain to exit the block entirely. >> do you think this is something like scottish independence whereby the more they implement it, the more
in germany. though the current government is thinking of creating one ahead of next year's elections. around 7 million people in germany are working at so-called mini jobs, kerning $530 a month, a relatively paltry amount, less than one-fifth the national average what is worse, the wage gap is widening. a trendy opposition and media accused the government of trying to hide in a recent report on income. >> we have a well-to develop low income sector where people are working in tempore situations. it means they cannot get out of the situation by working -- working in poor situations. >> of the increase in the number of working poor came about after the very reforms that may germany so competitive in europe. a competitive edge paid for in many ways by those who can least afford it. al jazeera cumberland. >> india has made an official protest to neighboring pakistan after two soldiers were killed in kashmir. india's summer and -- summoned but pakistani high commissioner to explain. the army said pakistani troops killed the men after crossing a line of control tuesday. in pakistan they say the ac

exploited women not to the election on some of the sites so i wonder if you could give some reaction to the argument that is being put forward by some of the suppliers that they are worried when the control regime is damaging the market and i knew what the policy was in relation to the german activity to the extent you feel the system we have is adequate to control the supply components. >> dhaka controls are on the export can't those capable of traveling in the payload with 500 kilograms are subject to the strong presumption of denial. we are an advocate of strong controls and partners ensure that these remain appropriately controlled. given that there are more countries interested effective and appropriate controls will remain very important and that isn't to say the technology changes but a woman can beat commander important. >> what about the development of leasing or renting out drones? because this couldn't be a way of getting around the regulations. do you think it is and the u.k. itself to those have to comply to the same regulations where if he has things coming to assume th
on and where is your backbone in spending cuts. you have folks saying, you have to realize elections have consequences. the president won. this to say beyond justifying tax hikes, it justified no spending cuts. i don't think that is the americanss saw it. they won't see the math here that hurts democrats and republicans alike if something isn't done? >> here is the question i think the president knows well that this is the question. is california the model we're going to follow? they are $165 billion to $335 billion in debt. they say they might have a surplus because they raised taxes, but in fact, $5.2 billion of that $6 billion a year is going to debt service alone. they are sort of swimming in debt. the other states are adding jobs and doing pretty well and i would add, many people argue against texas they are not spending enough on services. when it comes to education, they are in some cases, spending less money and across hispanic, white and black pop liaghz they are out performing california and out performing the national average. >> neil: bottom line. >> they are getting better re
in a presidential election cycle, we lost. not only conservatives but moderates as well. i think we need to go back to a that message of fiscal responsibility. the american people want fiscal responsibility. they want washington to live within their means just like small businesses and american families and organizations have to every single day. that's our message that wins. we are still here. >> i have something you said to me a year ago on a plane. your comment about the tea party being in disarray. as you are well aware in 2010, you seemed at least from who you supported to be a little bit different. joe miller of ab alaska, i tota have a man crush on this dude. you said, we did exactly what we set out to do, crush the establishment-backed gop candidate. are you being a little bit of a fair weather friend? it is all right if you are. i am just wondering. >> it is interesting how the media lies to portray these situations. i'm a big supporter of the tea party. i think given the finances and situations, there are a lot of people on the outside who it is time for them to come to the inside. they
election. they're coming off a fiscal debate at the end of the year where they feel like they didn't get anything out of it because they didn't get the spending cuts they want. they have these two things coming up in terms of the budget negotiations. and you have these automatic spending cuts that are set to go into effect at the end of february. they feel like the debt ceiling is going to be... is their leverage. they managed to usity fek tively in 2011 although if you're an economist you would say it wasn't effective and it ended up hurting the economy. politically they felt a little like they had gained some of the things that they want even though ultimately it did have a negative effect on the party. this whole battle is just going to really heat up in the next few weeks. >> woodruff: speaking of the politics of this, jake, the president did say today if this happens he thinks both parties would be blamed but in fact in the polls are showing that it appears most people would blame republicans if this happened. is that... how much is that even a factor among... in the thinking of rep
through this election and now here we are a year later, "politico" reporting that the tea party is struggling for money and asking all kinds of groups it hasn't always considered to be a friend. american majority, club for growth and the koch brothers, asking all of them for money. is the tea party going to have to compromise its principles in order to survive? >> no, erin, i don't think we are going to have to compromise our principles. look, if you look back to 2010 when the tea party movement drove the messaging, we won, we had huge victories across the country. when you look at 2012 and the republican party driving the messaging in a presidential election cycle, we lost, not only conservatives but moderates, as well. so i think we need to go back to that message of fiscal responsibility. because the american people want fiscal responsibility. they want washington to live within their means just like small businesses that american families and organizations have to every single day. and so i think that's our message that wins. and we're still here, we're not going anywhere. >
in the second day of balloting in the country 's first direct election. the president is set -- is stepping aside after one day in office. a more colorful candidate, a composer, has gained surprising popularity among the nation's young voters. no one candidate will gain an outright majority. there will be a runoff in the two weeks' time. angela merkel says unions have played an important role in overcoming the financial crisis by keeping the jobless rate low. she made the comments while attending the german trade association conference. she had criticism for the association. it is pushing for higher pay and a minimum wage. that proposal has not been popular with german employers. >> his company in berlin and makes machine housing. he employs about 150 people. he rejects the german labor federation's demand for a minimum wage. he says the government should not be involved in determining what labor costs. >> we need to preserve the cost of the labor market for employers and employees. employers three industry associations. it has worked well for decades. >> the unions counter that the wages p
on this, but it's fascinating to look at this in the broader context of the 2014 elections, and even after 2016, where i think what the liberal groups hope to do right now is consolidate their victories in 2012 and expand on them over the next four years. >> megyn: to what extent can they accomplish these goals? because these are not moneyless, powerless groups? these are heavy hitters and now going to work together and they say it's up to 30 to 35 groups that are going to work together to accomplish these goals. >> we've seen that the president has been responsive to pushes from his left in his first term. if you look, for instance, at what happened with the keystone pipeline, there were basically threats by the environmental groups that they were not going to take their access out, not going door-to-door for the president if in tactful fact backed the keystone pipeline. i'm not sure you can drawing a correlation between those two, but there's no question that that agitation had an influence on the white house and with the president and we've seen that with other groups and i think that's
a lot of money on the elections last cycle. they didn't have a lot to show for it especially if you look at results. a lot of their candidates lost. we are looking at return on their investment they had a low return on investment. they are very strong lobby. think the issue is who is going to remember the voices of the american people in this debate. >> reporter: president obama has said he wants to lay it on some of the proposals his task force gives him in the state of the union address. that task force led by the vice president is going to give president obama their recommendations on tuesday in the state of the union is scheduled for february 12th, one month from yesterday. >> gregg: peter, thanks very much. >> fox news is taking a closer look at the gun control debate with a special hannity airing tonight featuring a studio audience compromised some of the new yorkers who were outed by the journal news for having gun permits. that is at 9:00 p.m. eastern time right here on fox news channel. >> arthel: growing concerns over the shortages of flu vaccines as sick americans are overcrow
in the election with up to 15% of the vote. let's move back down to the desk and continue our discussion. we saw the declining yields since berlusconi left. well over 8%, actually. and now we're just at over 4%. how much is the fact that we may get an undecided election, what will that do for sentiment around italy? >> i agree that the risks to the rally we've seen in italian income. i think the biggest risks in the short-term are political risks. in the end, i think the election situation in italy is staying pretty much as we expected. we expect any party would achieve an absolute majority in both houses and the italian parliament and be able to run as a coalition. i think the rule is that combination is one that is reasonably positive for the markets and reasonably positive in italian bond prices over the last year. >> is it your contention that actually they'll be the same relative degree of comfort in 2013? at the same time, we've had a big gain? >> well, i think how much value there still is in italian bonds, i think, you know, we have to be a little bit skeptical that there's a lot of valu
in 2003 investigating the issue. now, it is possible that no one will get elected into the hall of fame and if that happens, it would only be the second time in more than four dick aid. it might even create a logjam in next year's elections. coming up we'll tell you why this shouldn't fall squarery on baseball players themselves. tara moriarty, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. >>> 7:06. sal is back now. boy, the commute is getting heavier and heavier. >> it certainly is, dave, and tori. this is the time when you start seeing the peak of this commute. you will see slow traffic all over the place. let's start off with a look at the toll plaza and the east shore, the east shore leading to the toll plaza, if will be pretty slow especially as you get past el cerrito. it slows down on the way to berkeley. it's not as bad as it could be. there is a little bit of space there in some of those lanes which is a nice surprise. maybe later in the week or maybe later in this morning is what i meant to say, it might get better after 8:00. moving along to the slow traffic on the east bay commute, all
this was not a surprise. he said he was going to do it before he got elected. once he got elected, he did it. he tripled the number of troops there, and he put this long, long end date on when the war was going to end, at the end of 2014, even after killing osama bin laden when guys like chuck hagel were saying okay, osama bin laden is dead. can we go now? we have not gone. and there is potentially another two years of it not ending ahead of us. by picking chuck hagel as defense secretary today, yes, the president has picked a political fight, although probably it's one that he can win. but by picking john brennan and chuck hagel together today, the president has made a complicated but emphatic statement about national security and how he intends to be remembered. and how he intends to either keep fighting or bringing americans home from the fighting after 12 long years over the course of this second presidential term. joining us now is andrea mitchell. she is nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent. andrea, thanks for being here. i appreciate you taking the time. >> thank you. happy new year. i haven

that was done back in july of last year before the election. it's about how the president of israel largely symbolic position, adamantly opposed an israeli strike because he said, i guarantee you, if it comes to it, the americans are going to do it. so, a lot of the israeli calculation back in september and october when they were thinking about a strike was, no, let's hold off because we have some confidence that the obama administration, if it comes to it, we'll do it. if it's necessary. a lot of the people who supported president obama said, "mark my words. he is a man of his word, he does this quite seriously." then he turns around and appoints perhaps the most prominent skeptic of any kind of military intervention in iran as his defense secretary. if you're sitting in israel, you're wondering just how reliable is the united states and maybe we should go it alone. so, for that reason alone, simply the appointment of chuck hagel is going to make the israelis more skittish and perhaps more prone to act. >> here's the irony. who said that military action against iran could prove catastrophi

. it was a lousy election. jay sherrod -- >> sherrod, baseball loves statistics and is that what we are talking about here? if they don't care about racism, you mess with the statistics. >> they love climbing up on the high horse and acting like they are holier than thou. they are losers in cooperstown. like cooperstown is the gate to heaven and you have to be a pure soul to come in. stop it. just put them in. eventually they will get in anyway. some people haven't been proven to be cheaters. it is just assumed. you can't stop them forever. >> and there are no steroids in professional sports. >> not any sports. >> the line backers, all natural. >> it is a good point though. a little known fact, and i apologize to the bureau of tourism, cooperstown is creepy. you have to go past a bunch of meth towns to go -- >> what towns? >> meth towns. it is a meth strewn area. you get to this ideal lick town and it is one street. all of the delis are full of weird people. >> it is like a little steven king village. >> completely. it was eye opening. you will have a weird time, but not necessarily a good time
say he does want to upset elections later this year. >> he is only 12 years old, but that is old enough to be immersed in politics in pakistan. >> the government is wrong. they have made our life helle. >> some have thrown their support behind a canadian- pakistani crcleric. his message resonates with people fed up with the breakdown of law and order and an increase of corruption and inflation. many are so angry that even mothers with no relation to the clerics s say they are ready to sacrifice their children. >> i told my children not to be afraid of bullets. take the bullet in your chest. we want change and revolution. our society will not move forward until we become selfless. >> so far he has refused to negotiate with the government, saying all talks will be held in the capital. it is, that has turned into a bunker. security forces have blocked roads. protesters say nothing will stop them and even have a crane to remove blockage from their way. >> they blocked roads with containers, they close roads -- we will walk their. >> his support is far from universal. in fact, there a

[laughter] it is extraordinary what you have produced in coutoure. does that make any money? quick to be honest, what we produce in coutoure does not make money but it does include money. i must say, i am very proud o

but it certainly is a problem for me. i spent an awful lot of time working on this election and i still believe it's the right direction to go. one thing i can say about the people i'm seeing coming in is that they appear to be qualified but more importantly, all of these women who are leaving right now would make really great congress in aren't there a few positions they might contest for? >> bill: that's an excellent point. hilda solis is planning on running for supervisor for los angeles county in 2014. so i know she'll stay in the public eye. i hope lisa jackson does, too. good to hear from you carol. thank you. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." 9am eastern. >> i'm a slutty bob hope. >> you are. >> the troops love me.

' voting decisions, trying to tell them they're going to lose their elections. interestingly enough, in 2008, more recently in 2012, the nra did very poorly in terms of getting their candidates elected. we have got to do what's right for the american people. we shouldn't have a situation where people are afraid to go to a movie, to go -- to take their kids to school, to just carry on their lives without fear that there is going to be a gunman there spraying an assault weapon at them. so we have to take some steps. the fact that our background check does not even address 40% of the guns that are purchased in this country a year is just unexplainable. we have got to take steps to make sure we close those loopholes, make sure the dealers, in fact, aren't selling guns, that become crime guns. and that if they do, that they have to pay penalties. >> i know many of the american people are awaiting the details from this proposals that should be coming out later this week. we should hear from the president. congressman speier, thank you. >> my pleasure. >>> up next, my red carpet chats with
pitcher of his generation and a seven-time cy young award winner, that's clemens, would be elected to the fhall of fame. however, now because of the cloud of p.e.d. use, performance enhancing drugs, i'm afraid the announcement will land with a thud. not only do i not expect them to get 75% of the vote, the amount that's necessary, i don't think we'll even reach 50%. >> just for the record, rafael palmeiro is the only one on the ballot who failed a drug test, who failed a steroid test. so why not put barry bonds and roger clemens in? i mean, barry bonds, what, was convicted of obstruction of justice. roger clemens, he went through this big, long trial. nothing happened. so why not vote them in? i mean, what justification will sports writers have for not allowing them into the hall? >> these are very complicated times. sports writers will tell you that anyone who has even had a hint of linkage with performance enhancing drug use will not be on their ballots, okay? of course, this is an era in which we don't exactly know which players might have used performance enhancing drugs or mig
comes next. 1 of 3 people who voted in this election were women who voted for obama. we had a discussion about binders of women. we're having this discussion about the cabinet largely because of how we got here. i think the personal matters but what that means for the policy actually would be a much more interesting conversation. >> i think part of the reason was -- we'll play a little bit of the binder for women. it became a tag looib after mitt romney told the story in one of the debates. take a look. >> i've got to tell you we don't have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women. >> the idea to go and ask where a qualified woman was, come to my house. he didn't need a binder. >> what does that mean? what does that mean? why is joe biden hiding qualified women in his house? >> what i better than joe biden. >> i agree. i'm grad we're talking about it. that photo had about a dozen people in it. the reality is there's 22 members of the cabinet and cabinet-level positions. eight of them are women. another five are minority men. so it's not like that phot
minister medvedev about more flexibility after the election. well, this is flexibility manifesting itself. we're pushing everything up more quickly. moving up the time line contradicts a lot of reports we've seen about the readiness of the afghan national army, whether they will truly be prepared to secure the country both to protect the regime there but also ensure the mission we went there to execute, which is prevent al qaeda and radical islamist extremists from having a haven from which to operate, whether they'll be able to do that. that is still an open question making this announcement -- >> what are we doing now, pete? some folks say we're kind of sitting ducks in some way. is the mission going on? what is the mission? what is the end goal in your mind as a veteran? >> sure. the end goal should be to secure america's interests. this is not about building a nation for afghan. let's be clear about that. however, i don't think a rush for the exits right now is the way to do it. a gradual, measured withdrawal based on conditions where we train the afghan national army to be capable. w
months after the election and you know, it's inevitable that it's going to be in support of the party who won the election, but look at what the obama machine is doing year round. they are articulating their message very well to all demographics and you know, they're-- they're in face-to-face contact with these people. stuart: wait a second, wait a second, wasn't it obvious in the november election, why wouldn't young people vote-- i'm trying to focus correctly here. look, you've got a rotten economy, young people in college face a lousy job market, they face overwhelming debt and yet, they vote for someone who is just focusing on social issues. why did they vote like that, why? >> the thing is, where was romney on college campuses, where was he? the conservatives keep writing off college campuses like they're a lost cause, but that's just not the case. we had a historic opportunity to win back a large chunk of the youth vote if we would have just tried, but you know, the conservatives just keep looking at college campuses and what's going on and keeps writing them off. and if young peopl
. this is not the normal way forward. this represents a broken system. >> if we quit thinking about the next election and start thinking about the next generation, we're going to make it through our lives just fine. it's what we're living behind. and they're going to have to come together sooner or later. >> there you heard it. it's the short term thinking creating potentially huge long-term costs for the american economy. >> the down grading of the u.s. economy was a huge problem. of course, it hasn't yet resulted in higher interest rates. a lot of people might say, look, who cares? let's be complacent. let's not worry about another downgrade. who cares? do people get it, in washington, that's it's important? >> it almost seems to be an afterthought in all of the chest thumping and bargaining, no one is thinking about it because the short-term impact of a default would be extraordinary. maybe we shouldn't call this the debt ceiling at all. maybe we should change it the do downgrade ceiling because this game of chicken is sick. >> sometimes semantics can make all the difference. >> "outfront" next, a
